Dateline 2017-07-14, The Star:

Gas Malaysia Bhd has revised up the natural gas tariff for Peninsular Malaysia’s non-power sector to an average base tariff of RM28.05 per MMBtu (one million British thermal units).

However, a government subsidy will lead to lower effective tariff rates for all tariff categories for the period from July 1 to Dec 31, 2017, compared with the existing rates.

In a filing with Bursa Malaysia, the gas distributor said  the Government, through the Energy Commission, had approved on Friday for Gas Malaysia to effect the revision for the six-month period.

The Government has prescribed the incentive based regulation (IBR) framework, which sets the base tariffs for a period of three years from January 2017 and allows changes in the gas costs to be passed through via the Gas Cost Pass Through (GCPT) mechanism every six months.
